Organic Dillisk 40g

  • Our Dillisk is hand harvested from the pristine Atlantic waters off the Connemara coast. Our low population density and lack of heavy industry on the west coast of Ireland leave the waters clean and clear. The upsurge of nutrients from the deep Atlantic currents, combined with the cool clean waters, create the perfect set of conditions for our extremely high quality seaweeds to grow. We carefully dry the dillsk at very low temperatures to make sure the high nutrient content is preserved.

    Ingredients: Organic Dillisk.

  • Use: This high quality dried dillsk can be chewed in its dry form as it would have been traditionally and still is today by many people. It can be added dried to baking or any sweet or savoury dish. It can be reconstituted by soaking it in water for 30 minutes before eating it raw, adding it to salads or cooking it in soups, stews or other sweet or savoury dishes.

    Benefits: Dillisk is an excellent source of protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

  • Connemara Organic Seaweed is run by Noel and Margaret Lee. Noel Lee was born and raised in Lettermullen, a beautiful windswept Island off the west coast of Ireland. They are now based in Rosaveel in County Galway. For generations, the Lee family have been hand harvesting seaweed off the Connemara coast. Having a positive impact on their community and their environment is at the core of all they do.

    They aim to provide you with sustainably harvested, local, edible seaweeds so that you can introduce these as an alternative food source that is healthy, nutritional, tasty, and good for the environment. They also have a range of body care products to enable you to use the highest quality seaweed products on your skin. It is important to acknowledge the importance of seaweeds for marine life, and we need to balance this with its use by humans. They therefore adopt an ecosystem approach, meaning that they promote conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way.

    Many of the seaweeds currently for sale have travelled thousands of kilometres to reach your local supermarket and food shop, often all the way from China. Small-scale, local produce is the key to a happier life and leads to a lower carbon footprint. By providing food from local waters, they hope to contribute to a low-carbon economy that takes care of its environment. They hope that seaweed becomes part of everyone’s diet and comes to be recognised as a superfood, both environmentally and nutritionally!
